Woman’s Doctor: Persistent headache causes

September 10, 2019


SIGNS OF MORE PROBLEMS. SH JOINS US THIS MORNING. .
SO OFTEN, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S
CAUSING THE HEADACHE AND WE MAY
GO TO MEDICINE IN THE CABINET
FOR IT. THAT’S NOT ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA.>>TRUE, BECAUSE THERE ARE
SEVERAL DIFFERENT KIND OF
HEADACHES. THE MOST COMMON HEADACHES ARE
TENSION HEADACHES. THE MOST COMMON HEADACHE THAT
BRINGS PATIENTS TO OUR OFFICE IS
MIGRAINE TYPE HEADACHE. AND THEN THERE ARE THE NEW
DAILY, PERSISTENT HEADACHES. SO PEOPLE MOSTLY JUST REACH INTO
THE MEDICINE CABINET AND START
TAKING OVER-THE-COUNTER PAIN
MEDICATIONS. SOMETIMES, THESE MEDICATIONS CAN
CAUSE MORE HEADACHE SEVERITY AND
SOMETIMES THEY CAN JUST, YOU
KNOW, BE OF NO USE. THERE COULD BE SOMETHING MORE
SERIOUS THAT COULD BE CAUSING
YOUR HEADACHES. IT’S BETTER IF THEY ARE
UNRELENTING, THEY ARE NOT
LETTING UP, NOT CUTTING YOU ANY
SLACK, TO REACH OUT AND SEE YOUR
PHYSICIAN TO DETERMINE WHAT
EXACTLY IS BEHIND THESE HEADACHES. LACEE: SO OFTEN, WE FIGURE WE’LL
TAKE SOME MEDICINE, FEEL BETTER
AFTER SLEEP. WHAT KIND OF RED FLAGS DO WE
NEED TO WATCH OUT FOR AND THEN,
IN TURN, MAYBE SEEK HELP FROM A
DOCTORS?>>THE MOST COMMON RED FLAGS, IF
YOU’VE NER HAD HEADACHES BEFORE
AND YOU SUDDENLY DEVELOP A
HEADACHE, WHICH IS NOT LETTING
UP. IF YOU DEVELOP FEVER, IF YOU
DEVELOP NECK STIFFNESS. ANYTHING NEUROLOGICAL, WHICH
WOULD BE NUMBNESS, TINGLING,
WEAKNESS, CHANGE IN YOUR VISION. ALL OF THESE COULD MEAN YOU
MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING LIKE
MENINGITIS, WHICH ISSEN FLAM
MATION OF THE MEMBRANES, WHICH
COVER THE SPINAL CORD AND BRAIN,
OR THERE COULD BE A TUMOR. THERE COULD BE INCREASE IN
PRESSURE IN YOUR BRAIN AS WELL. SO THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU
DON’T WANT TO MISS. LACEE: YOU KIND OF HAVE TO BE A
DOCTOR TO YOURSELF FIRST AND PAY
ATTENTION TO THE SYMPTOMS.>>ABSOLUTELY. LACEE: ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING
US.>>IT WAS A PLEASURE. LACEE: HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.>>THANK YOU. LACEE:
